Yea, I realized i had my spur gear to tight, didnt realize anything about slipper clutch until i was about to take off the spur gear last night, last time I replaced it I didnt know what I was doing... Atleast now I do... And I was doing some fast whoops when my diff broke and it was only the rear hitting hard because the front was only skipping

Yep, the pegs are basically the pad that most trucks use in their slipper assembly. They make for a pain sometimes in reassembly. [:@]

Best way to handle that is to grab a few things you look like you need and bring them up to the counter like you're ready to pay. Ask them a question about your T-Maxx and if they give you any lip at all, throw the stuff on the counter and say "do you really want this business or not because I could care less to move to online shopping (or name another LHS)". 3 times out of 4 they will continue on and won't give you any trouble, mostly because they need the business. It works, I did it with a guy at a shop here (it's a dump of a place but hey, i'd rather shop a sh*thole than wait for stuff online ) who always gave me a hard time over still owning an Overdrive ST and since then, he couldn't be happier to see it come in the door.
